Intern on an art internship in Colombia

Typical roles for Colombia art internships

Here are a few examples of roles that our art interns in Medellín have taken on before:

  • Art Sales

    From finding buyers to liaising with curators, this role requires great communication skills. Sourcing artwork that you feel has great sale potential, negotiating contracts, and building good relationships with artists is necessary for meeting crucial sales targets. The opportunities to learn are endless, and the experience priceless.

  • Art Teacher

    Educating people about art, its history, and its influence on social, political, and economic culture, is essential to society. Interns will have the opportunity to shadow art educators and learn about art, often through research.

  • Designer

    Art designers craft artworks for print, web, social media, ad agencies, and publishers, using software such as the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator). Interns will have the opportunity to sharpen their software skills, explore their creativity and gain experience working on real-life projects.

  • Art Valuer

    An art valuer is involved in assessing the monetary value of a particular artwork. This information can then be used by auction houses, insurance companies, or art dealers, to accurately insure or sell the item. In some cases, an art valuer may also hold the position of an auctioneer, thus allowing interns to directly participate in the auctioning of artwork.
